A reader forwarded me a link to a YouTube Legal Seminar.

The low point in that presentation (From Lawrence M. Lebowitz, [send him mail] of Cohen & Grigsby):

"And our goal is clearly not to find a qualified and interested U.S. worker. And you know in a sense that sounds funny, but it`s what we`re trying to do here. We are complying with the law fully, but ah, our objective is to get this person a green card, and get through the labor certification process. So certainly we are not going to try to find a place [at which to advertise the job] where the applicants are the most numerous. We`re going to try to find a place where we can comply with the law, and hoping, and likely, not to find qualified and interested worker applicants."

Now, this is the sort of problem you get when the laws are made by a body in which lawyers have undue influence. In the 109th congress, 160 representatives listed their occupation as lawyer—as did 58 senators.

The conflicts of interest here are staggering. We have sadly reached a point where it is considered perfectly normal to gain riches via manipulating the legal system.

UPDATE: They removed the video, but it can be seen here.
